Steven Goldenberg was quoted in the Westlaw article, "NJ Coalition for Affordable Power Calls on Board of Public Utilities To Reject PSE&G's $3.9 Billion 'Energy Strong' Proposal." While the full text can be found in the October 31, 2013, issue of Westlaw, a synopsis is noted below.

The New Jersey Large Energy Users Coalition (NJLEUC) and other organizations are contesting Public Service Electric and Gas’s (PSE&G) $3.9 billion Energy Strong Program, which is currently before the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities.

“NJLEUC supports utility efforts to provide reliable electric and natural gas delivery services as part of their obligation to provide safe, reliable and affordable service to customers,” Steven Goldenberg said. “However, PSE&G has yet to demonstrate the need for its Energy Strong proposal or that the proposal would be effective, cost-effective or serve the public interest. Instead, PSE&G has supported its $4 billion spending proposal with an aggressive public relations effort designed to win the support of local officials and business organizations.”
